Teach your young singers about musical imagery as the playful music, text and light percussion effects imitate the sound of falling rain. The words are by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: "How beautiful is the rain! After the dust and heat, in the broad and fiery street, in the narrow lane. How beautiful is the rain!" The "drip-drop" piano part sets the scene for "drip-drop" vocal rain, while rainstick, drum, wood block and triangle complete the picture. This is simply delightful!
